Notable Quote: John Calvin

John Calvin (1509–1564) on contending with the devil . . .

The fact that the devil is everywhere called God’s adversary and ours also ought to fire us to an unceasing struggle against him. For if we have God’s glory at heart, as we should have, we ought with all our strength to contend against him who is trying to extinguish it.

Truly we are to love the Lord with all our strength and fighting against the devil is included in that.
